Post 3:
I had never read the original Thor comics before. I had no idea the character started out as a normal human who would turn into a god by carrying Mjolnir. I’m glad that more recently the character has been portrayed as the actual Thor, as I find the stories involving the Asgardians much more interesting.
That being said, I really enjoying “Odd and the Frost Giants”. It was a short read, but a wonderful story. I love how Gaiman took the story of the Frost giant who built the wall around Asgard, and then added a vengeful brother. It shows how the frost giants may have felt about being tricked by Loki and the other gods, but also that the giants knew that they weren’t totally in the right in that situation. When odd asks the giant what his brother had asked for as payment, the giant responds “‘Nothing really’, … shifting from foot to foot. ‘Just stuff'” (Gaiman 81). Gaiman’s story takes the same humanization that Norse tales give to the gods, and applies it to the frost giants as well.

In the beginning of the Odd and The Frost Giants it spoke about Odd’s father who died. I see his father as being Honor from the Nine Noble Virtues because of the reason he died, which would have been because he was saving a valuable pony. Along with that we see a lot of self-reliance from Odd. Like it says in the beginning there is really nothing special about him, so it’s apparent that he relies on himself most times. This book oddly seems like such a fairytale compared to most of the other readings we have done. It is interesting to see how far along the Thor comics have come or even any of the marvel comics. The Thor comics we have seen from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby depict Thor much differently than how we see him in the actual Mythology readings. In the readings he seems much more powerful and like we see in Odd and The Frost Giants, he becomes an animal which is something beyond what we had ever seen him do before.
Post 1:
The elements of the Nine Noble Virtues seen in Odd and the Frost Giants are courage, self-reliance and hospitality. Odd was definitely courageous to take the next step and intertwine with the animals, while not knowing them. He became a kid full of self-reliance, while stepping out of his comfort zone and getting out on his own. He was alone with the animals and became so hospitable to them, making them comfortable and they made him feel accepted as well.
The traditional stories that were noticed in the text were The Ugly Duckling and Robin Hood. The Ugly Duckling is noticed by the fact that Odd feels good about himself while he is out with the animals. This story shows as he is transformed into a better version of himself while socializing with the creatures. Robin Hood is also noticed because Odd finds himself as an independent loner, yet he finds himself as a strong boy. The presentation of myth in Odd and the Frost Giants compares with the children’s version that was read previously by stating more details. The children’s version was more simple and did not include as many details as this one.
The differences noticed from the first Thor comic were Thor’s ultimate strength and courage. He is shown as a strong man, that is willing to do what he can to show off that power. His courage is depicted while he steps in and saves the day and shows the ultimate power score.

Instructions from the Syllabus: For your final project, you will research a cult

Instructions from the Syllabus:
For your final project, you will research a culture and pantheon. Choices for research and additional details will be provided on Canvas.
Details:
For this assignment you may choose to work with the following cultures/pantheons:
Aztec
Chicano (Mexican-American)
Hawaiian
Inuit
Korean
Mayan
Mesopotamian
Navajo
Hindu
Yoruba
Research your chosen culture or pantheon and synthesize a report. In your report you should address:
The general culture of the people including relevant historic and current circumstances
Obviously you can’t give an entire history but make sure you provide some context for their beliefs.
The general pantheon or beliefs of the people
Focus on the basic elements (monotheistic vs polytheistic, primary figures, worship, etc.).
The context or interpretations of stories
Essentially: connect the first point (the people) to the second point (the belief system).
Current children’s publications on the culture and beliefs
I’m not expecting you to read all the books you locate. I’m looking for you to research whether any exist. If so, who is writing or publishing these stories? How are these stories being adapted or presented for children? If there are not any current books, why might that be so?
You may extend beyond these elements depending on what you find in your research.

-Discussion: The current immigration system of quotas and preferences means that some people will never be able to enter the United States. Moreover, there are several million Dreamers in the country who are waiting to see if the DACA program will continue to exist in the future. Additionally, the existence of guest-worker visas means that some people can work here with no representation, few legal protections and no chance to earn citizenship. Given all of these situations, what should the U. S. do to enact immigration and citizenship rules that are fair, generous, and humane?

Consider two types moral reasoning: Consequentialist and Non-Consequentialist approaches (and the specific theories involved).
Which of these theories, if any, do you find most reasonable, and why?
Provide a clear example to demonstrate your thinking.
In responses to at least two peers, check their work. Were their explanations and examples clear and accurate? Identify any problems/errors in their logic or explain why you agree with their rationale. Make sure your responses are substantive and contribute extra to the discussion.

B​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​elow I’ve extracted a basic argument for determinism on the basis of the passage from Hume. Reconstruct rationales for each p​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​remise based on the text under “explain”.

I want you to develop your own topic and thesis based on any of the
authors we have read the this term. Choose something from Dewey, Parfit, the apology, crito, allegory of the cave, descartes, Nagel etc.
You paper should be an argument, so your thesis should be something like “In this paper, I will argue that _________”.
If you’re stumped for a topic, think about the papers we have written
already. They have asked you to apply a given thinker(s) work to a
problem (consciousness, civil disobedience). You can frame your paper
similarly by asking “What would Marx (or whomever) think about X?” where
X is a philosophical problem or social issue.
External research is not necessarily required, but may be necessary
depending on your paper. Such research must be properly cited, of
course.

technical Requirements
Short Essay Two is required to be:
800 to 1,200 words (4-5 pages)
12 pt. Times New Roman font, double spaced, 1” right and left margins
Microsoft .docx format (not .pages or .pdf)
Directions
[STEP ONE] Short Essay Two will focus on the moral theories you learned in weeks 5 through 7. You can choose one or more of these theories to focus on in your paper.
Feminist Ethics of Care
Kantian Deontology
The Ethics of Virtue
[STEP TWO] For each Short Essay, choose one(1) Applied Ethics subject and dilemma to write about from the list of Short Essay Applied Ethics Subjects:
[NOTE: YOU MUST CHOOSE A DILEMMA IN THIS LIST. YOU CANNOT CHOOSE YOUR OWN DILEMMA]
Examples:
For your Short Essay Two paper you could choose to argue using the Ethics of Virtue that it is ethical to take a knee during sports events.
[STEP THREE] Your essay will be organized according to a modified Rogerian Argument Structure:
The Rogerian Argument Structure is used to find common ground between two sides in a complex issue so it is a good writing structure for analyzing and arguing ethical dilemmas. We will modify this structure somewhat to allow for the examination of an ethical dilemma. Your essay will be divided into four sections, with each section answering particular questions about the ethical dilemma and moral theories you have chosen to use. Remember, your essay will be 800-1200 words total so please allocate enough words for each section!
Suggested Title: The Ethics of [case or dilemma] in [subject] using [moral theory] by [your name]
Examples:
“The Ethics of Vaccine Rationing in Medicine Using Utilitarianism by Susan Kitteridge”
or
“The Ethics of Taking A Knee in Sports Using Virtue Theory by John Meyerson”
or
“The Ethics of Manufacturing Defects in Business Using Kantian Ethics by Stephen Mousse”
Each section of your essay must address the following questions:
SECTION I: Explain the ethical dilemma presented in the case in your own words. What are the relevant facts that need to be understood in order to come to an ethical decision? What are the summary pros and cons of both sides? Why is there disagreement between opposing views?
SECTION II: Explain in detail an opposing or different ethical view. What do people who follow this view believe? Why? What are the facts that would lead them to believe this view? Why is this view reasonable for some people to hold? How does the moral theory or theories I chose to study help to explain this opposing view? (Beware the Strawman Fallacy in this section)
SECTION III: Explain my ethical view. What are the facts that lead me to believe in this view? How does the moral theory or theories I chose to study help to understand my ethical view? How does the moral theory help to understand why differing views are wrong?
SECTION IV: What agreement (common ground) exists between my ethical view and the view of people who oppose or differ from my view? How does this common ground help to understand the ethical dilemma? How can this common ground lead to a solution of the dilemma?
Additional explanation of the Rogerian Argument Structure can be found at the website of the Excelsior Online Writing Lab, including a visual representaion. (But remember, we have modified this basic structure above)
